This coffee cake recipe is a variation of one a close friend and I make for our home baking business. I've used raspberries and blueberries in place of the rhubarb with winning results. —Lorraine Robinson, Stony Plain, Alberta

This was so good as written, but I did add another half cup of rhubarb. Fixed my pregnancy craving!

Just a word on the topping I did not melt the butter I mixed it with a pastry cutter and it did turn out very well all the same measurements applied. I also put cranberries with the rhubarb and mixed directly into the batter,and poured into the pans,(glass) wow what a great turn out.....

This was very good! I added a few strawberries and it was delicious. Next time I may try a different crumb topping though.

This was a great easy recipe and I actually substituted strawberries instead. I agree though about the topping, the ingredients noted make a pasty carmelized substance that you can't sprinkle. I used just a basic streusel topping mix and that seemed to work much better!

this is very tasty, however,i question the amount of butter in the topping mixture.you can't "sprinkle" it because it becomes paste-like.i will use a topping from another recipe next time.
